愛錯 (Ai Cuo) by 王力宏 (Wang Leehom)

April 30, 2010 at 4:59 pm (*** Difficult, Chinese lyrics, Pinyin lyrics) (, )

In my opinion, 愛錯 is one of Wang Leehom’s most amazing pieces. From his 2004 album 心中的日月, which also contained the hit Forever Love, Ai Cuo includes some of his most powerful singing on any album. I’m sure there will come a time when the now 33-year-old Leehom won’t be able to sing this song anymore (think Whitney Houston’s recent performances), but he still had it going on for his 2008 Music Man tour (part of a vocally challenging 3-hour concert, mind you! See the live performance of this song here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64qvxUHOJa0).

If you can manage to sing this song well, good on you. The song is slow, but the vocabulary and vocal difficulty make it a little harder for a beginner. The range isn’t easy to cover for most people – in fact, I tend to ask a male friend to sing the beginning for me, as it is quite low for a woman. Extra points for getting all the non-chorus flourishes toward the end of the song. (Note: background chorus is in parentheses)

北風毫不留情 把葉子吹落
bei feng hao bu liu qing  ba ye zi chui luo

脆弱的她選擇了逃脫
cui ruo de ta xuan ze le tao tuo

葉子失去消息 風才感覺寂寞
ye zi shi qu xiao xi  feng cai gan jue ji mo

整個冬天 北風的痛沒人能說
zheng ge dong tian  bei feng de tong mei ren neng shuo

(Chorus)

我從來沒想過 我會這樣做
wo cong lai mei xiang guo  wo hui zhe yang zuo

從來沒愛過 所以愛錯
cong lai mei ai guo  suo yi ai cuo

我從哪裡起飛 從哪裡降落
wo cong na li qi fei  con na li jiang luo

多少不能原諒的錯卻不能重來過
duo shao bu neng yuan liang de cuo que bu neng chong lai guo

翻開回憶角落 完美的生活
fan kai hui yi jiao luo  wan mei de sheng huo

以為幸福都可以掌握
yi wei xing fu dou ke yi zhang wo

仔細回味當初 那個故事背後
zi xi hui wei dang chu  na ge gu shi bei hou

Oh 原來是我 犯下從沒承認的錯
Oh yuan lai shi wo  fan xia cong mei cheng ren de cuo

(Repeat chorus)

在這少了你的世界
zai zhe shao le ni de shi jie

Oh 找不回那些感覺
Oh zhao bu hui na xie gan jue

其實我不想道別 ( 道別 )
qi shi wo bu xiang dao bie (dao bie)

那些過去
na xie guo qu

( 我從來沒想過 我會這樣做 )
(wo cong lai mei xiang guo   wo hui zhe yang zuo)

( 從來沒愛過 所以愛錯 )      從來沒有愛過那麼認真
(cong lai mei ai guo  suo yi ai cuo)   cong lai mei you ai guo na ma ren zhen

( 我從哪裡起飛 )     從哪裡
(wo cong na li qi fei)  cong na li

( 從哪裡降落 )      降落 Oh~
(cong na li jiang luo)   jiang luo  Oh~

( 多少不能原諒的錯卻不能重來過 )
(duo shao bu neng yuan liang de cuo que bu neng chong lai guo)

( 我從來沒想過 我會這樣做 )
(wo cong lai mei xiang guo  wo hui zhe yang zuo)

( 從來沒愛過 ) 愛過 ( 所以愛錯 ) 所以愛錯
(cong lai mei ai guo)  ai guo  (suo yi ai cuo)  suo yi ai cuo

( 我從哪裡起飛 ) 愛錯愛錯愛錯 baby
(wo cong na li qi fei) ai cuo ai cuo ai cuo baby

( 多少不能原諒的錯 ) ooh 請你原諒我的 愛錯
(duo shao bu neng yuan liang de cuo) ooh qing ni yuan liang wo de   ai cuo
